About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

A Thursday Update

Wednesday 1/27/10
So as I had said in my last blog I didn't think I would work out on Wednesday and I was right. After work and church I kind of wanted to do something but my body felt really tired from the previous days workout so I gave myself a break.

Thursday 1/28/10
This morning when i woke up I decided to...let's say play a mental game with myself. As I said the plan is to not weigh in until saturday. I always weigh myself in the evening because it is a "truer" number. You probably know that if you weigh yourself in the morning it will be a lower number due to things such as the 8 hour fast you just had, water weight and food weight. So while getting dressed I stepped on my scale. Now it wasn't on the wii fit and of course I didn't write it down where I track my weight, it was just kind of to see and motivate. Anyways, it said I dropped 8 lbs. I would love to drop 8 lbs this week but I know that is silly. But it did work. I watched what I ate today and really wanted to eat some of the snacks I was feeding the kids today but I resisted. Go me!!

Then this evening I had to get my exercise on. I thought I had 3 hours of tv on but turns out everything was reruns. So I did a one mile walk (Walk Away the Pounds or WAP) while watching a new episode of Bones. Then went over to my brothers living room to get on the wii fit. I did 20 min of stair stepping for a total of about 2200 steps. Then my brother and sil came home so I gave them back their living room and went back to mine. I didn't feel this was enough and wasn't sure when my brother would go to bed so I could use the wii fit again so I popped in a movie "Taking Woodstock" and did 3 more miles with the WAP video.

I have 4 different videos each with multiple different types of miles on them. Today I did a video that included hand weights for 3 of the miles I did. I can definitely feel it in my arms. It feels good. I kind of want to do more because the exercise does make my body feel good but don't want to push myself. I have a long day at work tomorrow and don't want to be too sore or anything.

So I wanted to update you with my current happenings. Oh wait I was going to mention. I was thinking of adding a progress bar to my page. I don't how I will do it. Of course the standard way is to put how much weight I want to loose and then just move the bar to the total amount lost. But I think I might want to just say my current weight and goal weight, well maybe a 1 year goal weight, and put that down. Saying my real weight for all to see may be a little embarrassing but not really. If you are reading this then you have probably met me and know I am morbidly obese. Not sure which weigh I will go, guess we will see. But for now I am off to take a shower and then read part of my current motivational books, "Fat Chance" by Julie Hadden, she was on season 4 of The Biggest Loser. So far it has been major encouragement to get my butt moving!


  1. Ok, I added the tracker. I can't get it too fit on the right side of the page. The top of the page is too scary right now. So if you scroll to the bottom of the page you will see it.
